In scientific terms, weight is defined as the amount of force that acts on an object due to the pull of gravity. The weight is a dynamic quantity that changes according to the amount of matter present in the body and force of gravity. A body with the same mass will have less weight on the moon as compared to the earth. This unit quantifies the objects in a way that becomes easier for trade and transportation. Also it represents the quantity of matter which helps in balancing the production and consumption of goods. You can use this weight unit converter tool for precise results.
